Bournemouth by the sea

bournemouth1
These days I spend most of the year studying and living in Bournemouth, England. You may remember, last year I lived in Poole, but this year I’ve moved to Bournemouth so that I could be walking distance from my university campus. These pictures were more-or-less my first impression of Bournemouth back in September 2011. Bournemouth is one of the sunniest and warmest places in the United Kingdom and the beach sees a lot of tourist each year.

On this particular day, I took a bike trip organized by my university along the beach almost all the way to Poole, ending at a particularly nice almost-sunset where I took more photos and used one for a quote a while back.

The beach is kept clean and dotted with beach huts that can be rented out to visitors. Turn away from the beach and you’ll be looking up beautifully vegetated cliffs with all types of plant species I’ve come to be very familiar with thanks to my course. Take a look back out, past the sand, and you’ll get a glimpse of boats sailing among worn away chalk cliffs in the distance.

What a gift to see where you are and what frames your days, Eva. The expanse of the waters and the vegetation of the cliffs—wow. Thanks for sharing these. Can just picture you rolling along around these places.

What a pretty place to live, Eva! I would wake up in a much better mood everyday if I was at walking distance from the sea :-)

Looks beautiful!! I traveled around South England twice already and I just loved it. There are so many beautiful places around the coast and countryside. Lucky you! :) Btw… did you meet Jane Goodall yet? I think that’s where she lives when she is not traveling the world ;)
